A diverse and free community is critical to the success of a great university, and Hofstra University has long had a sustained commitment to fostering an atmosphere of tolerance, understanding and interconnection with each other and with the world around us - local, national and international.

Hofstra University continues its commitment to extending equal opportunity to all qualified individuals without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, national or ethnic origin, physical or mental disability, marital or veteran status in the conduct and operation of its educational programs and activities, including admission and employment.

The PhD Program in Clinical Psychology at Hofstra University believes that our program is best served when the students, faculty, and staff reflect and celebrate the diversity of society at large. Thus, o ur program is fully committed to increasing the recruitment of underrepresented students and has one annually awarded Diversity Scholarship in Clinical Psychology that covers all expenses in the program through graduation.

Our commitment to embracing diversity is evident in our training and our geographic location. Much of the clinical coursework covers issues related to diversity (e.g., Cross-Cultural and Diversity Issues in Professional Psychology, Ethics in Professional Psychology, Adult Psychopathology, Child Psychopathology, Personality Assessment, Intellectual and Cognitive Assessment).

Many -- and perhaps the overwhelming majority -- of practicum and externship sites serve underrepresented groups. The New York Metropolitan area, where all of our students attend their practicum/externships, is an extraordinarily diverse geographic area. In fact, the borough of Queens -- located within 10 miles of Hofstra University -- is considered to be the most ethnically diverse location in the world. These clinical practicum placements value serving individuals of various racial and ethnic backgrounds, religions, sexual orientations, gender identities, and socioeconomic statuses. As a result, students will gain experience in evidence based practices with diverse clientele under the supervision of advanced clinicians.
